Britain’s Wendy Bevan is a wide-ranging artist with multi-disciplinary interests across culture. As much a performance artist and visual artist as she is a musician, Bevan commands attention with her theatrical style and enigmatic music that conjures mini movies in the listener’s head. She’s performed at London’s ICA and the Hackney Empire, as well as having her work incorporated into several film soundtracks. Now this modern day Renaissance woman is about to release her debut album, Rose & Thorn, tomorrow and you can preview it here. Bevan’s sound is built around drum machines, synthesizers and strings from the Balanescu Quartet and it verges between dark wave and cold wave.
